"Skunk Hollow Blues"

as performed by Johnny Hodges
Instrumentation: Ellington 7-pc
Level: 2
Notes: Skunk Hollow Blues is a very laid back colorful blues and a fantastic rare gem of the swing era. The intro and head features plungered trumpet on one line, bari and bone on another, and the alto on a third melody, a rare true 3-part counterpoint! Riffs and triadic voicings back up a couple of solos, leading to an ending chorus full of new material, half of which sounds like the head and half of which is full of creeping chromatic motion full of dynamics. The trombone part has very little rest and high Bbs near the end, making this tough for level 2. A must-have!
